到過在高山上的東公路瑤族村訪問幾位紅旗小學寄宿生後, 我們隨著另外幾位學生的腳步, 到他們的家去.
We followed other students to go home after going to Yao Zu village at a mount.

回家路上的小溪 the small stream on the way home

走到中途才發現不很對勁. 原來我們必須跟隨小學生們涉水渡過一條小河.
Something was wrong. I realized that we had to follow the students to wade into the water.

大家連忙脫掉鞋襪, 光著腳踏進清涼但滿佈大小石頭的河道中.
Everyone put off shoes and soaks and started wading into the river.

腳板被不平的石頭刺痛著, 心裏想著河道為甚麼是那麼寛闊的, 口裏不停呼救…
Feeling the pain of feet, thinking why the river is so wide, calling for help.

須由經驗豐富的孩子們扶持
Had to get help from children

原來孩子們回家的路是這樣的. 原來即使怎樣自命不凡, 也會被一條小溪難倒, 向輕鬆過河的小孩們俯首稱臣.
That’s the path of children to go to school. I’m just an arrogant person and a river can be a big issue for me. Even children can do something I can’t do.
